Schweitzer makes exuberantly large oil paintings of people dancing, playing music, fighting and fleeing from metaphorical and actual upheaval. She stages a series of actions and reactions to capture a peak dramatic moment. Her painting technique, coupled with her specificity in color and form help create bold and expressive experiences. Her paintings embrace an historic tradition of grand-scale figurative painters referencing some of the timeless and iconic works of art history while exploring more contemporary themes such as anxiety and autobiography.
